for capital and money. yet because of our mistake in tax code we have a trillion dollars of u.s. money stranded overseas belonging to our mult-nation corporations that's sitting. and it's either going to sit there or it's going to be invested information remember economies like europe, asia and south america. we need to repay try it that trillion dollars. we need to bring this money home. brig it home tax free. that money is not coming home. we need that money to come home to build new facilities. and to invest in new tech nothinnot technologies and to hire more people in america and not overseas. that kind of tax policy is the tax policy we need to follow. at the same time, i think it's way over due that we join most of the other advanced nations in the world, our competitors by cutting corporate income tax. in half. as almost every other country has done in the last 10-years. on tax policy, where the left wants to raise taxes, i think we need to make those tax cuts. why? because we want to grow the economy. we want to add jobs for americans. this is not satisfactory that we're not do
